The Omaha books are a gumbo of improbable ingredients. The characters are "furries," mostly human but each with some trace of cat, bird, dog, or other critter. Omaha herself is an exotic dancer, but one who manages to miss most of the ugly side of her trade. The plot is a soap opera, winding with lifelike aimlessness through encounters with gangsters, business tycoons (as if there's a difference), old flames, and new loves. And, as the full-frontal cover suggests, these young, healthy, adult characters show a zealous interest in healthy adult play. The erotic encounters are explicit, but also consensual and based on some kind of real feeling. The writers show real respect for all of the characters, prostitutes and strippers included - the opposite of coercive, dehumanizing pornography.

Like a gumbo, the improbable ingredients meld together into a tasty treat. The drawing is basic and somewhat erratic; try not to think too hard about the first few pages. The story meanders, and won't suit the fan of bang-pow action comics. If it were a movie, I'd almost call it a chick flick of the more sensual kind. Instead, this book collects a unique comic that appeared sporadically from the late 70s to early 90s. If you take happy adult relations in stride, you might like this one.

Omaha the Cat Dancer is a wonderful work of art. Yes, I said "work of art."

The writing is compelling and the artwork has a vibrancy that conveys every emotion perfectly. And even though it is from a few years back and in black and white, it still feels as fresh as if it was made today.

A real treat for a mature reader to enjoy.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and when it arrived he was so happy. The book came in great condition and was able to complete my boyfriends collection. I couldn't be happier with it and would easily buy from these guys again :)

There is a lot of adult content for all the lustful eyes, but the beauty of Omaha is a wonderful story. It's like a soap opera with all the intrigue, relationships in turmoil, and failed dreams. Omaha is ever the optimist. If sexual situations repulse you then get something else, but if you don't mind a bit of skin around a great story then I highly recommend all of the Omaha series.

I just recently learned about Omaha & the crew. I knew I HAD to have the book to see what it was all about. I am so happy I decided to make this purchase. Omaha & friends are real, raw & just the flavor adults need when it comes to this type of genre. I can't wait to get the other books! Excellent work & I hope they keep the stories coming!

An ongoing series that has a following. I now have all eight (8) volumes which completes the collection. I've enjoyed the new content that was added to the stories.

I didn't have any expectations when I bought this. It turned out really good. The story is interesting and the art is fun. I'll be reading the rest of the seriese.
